I just read Cory Doctorow's Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom in four and a half hours, give or take a half-hour. It's a great book, well-written, and postulates a revolution that all those dead guys that are so popular these days didn't think of.

I have a midterm in Intro to Logic tomorrow afternoon, which I will ace.

I have a final in English 101 on Wednesday for which I need to write 500 words to be submitted with the rest of the exam. I just got my research material out from the library. I'm gonna do great.

I've a couple of papers due in before the end of the month. The first is a comparative essay on F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Robertson Davies' Fifth Business for the aforementioned English class. The second is a paper for Intro. to Moral Philosophy on the grounding of Rights Theory in terms of the right to do business and the rights of individuals with which this right comes into conflict. (For instance, the right to make profit by forcing someone to buy your product at gunpoint is obviously absurd, but what about the right to make profit by paying workers less than a living wage? And in case you think I'm talking about Nike, I'm more in mind to look at the Great Depression, à la The Grapes of Wrath. And so forth, drawing the line, etc.)

In English tutorial today, I directed a class discussion on a question on Fifth Business of my choosing, and I 0wnz3rd it. That discussion was clearly my bitch.

Math is being overwhelming, as usual, but I've got it nicely sandboxed this time. As soon as these two exams are through I can afford to pay some more attention to it.
